Voice Dubbing: Dubsmash

deo for the dubbing part..

Some are hilarious, some are downright witty, but there also some people just don't know how to use the app.. I've probably browsed through thousands of #dubsmash videos in Instagram over the weekend and there's some videos I go like, "huh, do this guy/girl even know what is dubbing?!" - goes to show how stupid they are..

But then again, Asian boys are soooooo limited and few, most of the videos are girls and whatever ethnicity they are..

I've done two videos.. that's all the time I have.. will keep fiddling with it some more to see what's new..

Club Med Cherating - My personal review

I have written a review of Club Med Cherating, which I posted in Holiday Tours' website - also double up as a soft sell approach LOL..

It is a much more professional writing compared to the one I wrote here last week hehe.. can't blame me lah.. Have to write properly so no revealing pictures! haha..

Club Med has promotions pretty much most of the time so the next time they have sales again, you might want to check it out and try it once, and trust me, once won't be enough..

St Anne's Feast - Aug 1

It's been a few years since I last went to St Anne's Feast.. I am not a Catholic but I am compelled and "obligated" to return to give thanks annually (actually) for a prayer for me answered when I was very young.. I did not ask what, why, when, how because those are not important..

St Anne's Church is a Roman Catholic Church in Bukit Mertajam, Penang.. Built in 1888, it has since expanded and a new building was erected some 10 years back, and the hill behind the church has become off-limits to the public.. Those days you can climb the hill and light candles and offer prayers all the way up.. Perhaps it was too dangerous that it's not possible anymore..

The last time I came was in 2012.. I would normally be very quick in doing what I have come to do and leave soon after.. In 2012 I sat through the morning mass though..

Unlike the other, donations made to churches are not tax-deductible.. But it's made in good faith because it's more blessed to give than receive (??). I always believed so and my visits always accompanied by an undisclosed amount.. I won't call it a tithe or an offering either, just simple donation.

This year the official Feast date is 1 August and I am already planning my roadtrip up north.. Alone if I have to..

Just to fulfil my obligation..

It's all around you...

One day you are hurt...



But first did you receive?

A quick solution...



But chances are you could be...



Confirmed fucked.. Many years later, your kids start with...

And...


Then the teacher marks in their exercise books...



You bought your kid a computer.. and it's running on...



Did he copy his homework off somewhere?




Arghhhh so stress!!!!
Maybe all you need is just a holiday to...


Of course, you'll need to depart from...



To get there, there's only one way which is... this...


You don't own a Proton, but you own a...



Leaving your house on the way, then uh-oh....




 You forgot to change money, but don't worry! You're in good hands!



Leaving on a jetplane, you suddenly remembered you haven't called the plumber to fix the broken pipe connector. and you're fucked because your water bill will be so fucking high..

Annual Leave Redefined

Just received an update for my annual leave entitlement..



Yahoo!! It's been updated to 16 days this year as this is my third year.. And top it up with birthday leave, that makes it 17 days!

But then again, how is it enough! Hahaha..

(back when I was in IKANO, I have 14 days annually plus a day for each of the day I was duty manager and mind you, I have more leaves than I can take month on month! Cos it was so short of duty managers that we were practically working every weekend without break!)

Beauty Bags

I've recently begun to start looking at backpacks because I don't really like to lug the trolley luggage bag around, especially in a foreign place where I need to walk/use public transport a lot.. It's quite inconvenient also to lug the bag around crowded places through train stations etc..

The current backpack I have is about 30l which is good for about a week's worth without laundry, but come my next mega trip, I'm expecting to be away at least 16 days but I'll need to do some laundry halfway, and since I'll be on the move from city to city, town to town, station to station, I need something that I can conveniently tug and lug..

These babies are beautiful but they aren't that cheap.. at least I have a set budget of what I am prepared to spend for a backpack of this size.. I am looking to get a 45-50l backpack that can fit nicely as cabin baggage..

This is a nice 45l one.. Squarish and "clean"..
One thing I don't like is.. it doesn't have the back air-vent and no internal compartments.. 
Size-wise, it's perfect for me!

Explorer Giant 45l.. Don't really like the design much but it's compact for a 45l backpack!

I saw one that's currently on promotion in Sportsdirect but I don't really like the colour that they are having..

I also dislike those "typical" looking backpacks which makes a person (read: tourist) looks darn silly and targeted.. And neither would I like bright neon colours as I don't like the limelight (hahahahah!!!) or attention.. Still prefer a black or dark colour backpack but I'm using my white trolley luggage bag despite it almost time to replace..

Guess I'll just have to keep looking and keep shopping around..

Beware of this gym


A fellow Bodycombat instructor and friend made the news headlines today.

The gym he was teaching at refused payment and threaten to sue for defamation instead when my friend posted his ordeal on Facebook.

I have my fair share of non-payments as well but the owners eventually paid up after all the instructors get together collectively and demanded payment.. Those gyms in questions are Synargym and TM Fitness Centre (both have since closed down) and E-Fitness Subang Jaya (still in operations) - last I heard this gym is having issues as well..

The modus operandi has always been the same: delay payment, postpone payment, give plenty of excuses (accountant on leave, no signatory, cheque not ready) till it dragged on for months.. Fortunately, I have recovered all the money owed to me while teaching in these gyms..

Lesson to self, never to accept or trust small gyms.. I am not going to teach in small gyms anymore after finding myself chasing for payments month after month..
